And Then It Was Real

Family of four with bacon

My head has been up in the clouds lately while I’ve reveled in what it feels like to be in love again. Ben is the first guy that’s ever been good for me. He’s the first guy that’s ever been patient with me, and the first one that’s challenged me to face the parts of …

The Balancing Act

Woman walking on tightrope over cityscape

He took my face in his hands and hastily kissed me after I walked through his door for our usual Monday night date, taking me by surprise. Without even realizing, our Monday night dates have become part of my routine now. For those few hours each week he’s completely mine and I’m completely his, and …

An Open Letter To The Guy I’m Falling For

Bacon Crossroads

Five dates. To most five dates is nothing, but to the girl that usually runs those five dates mean everything. I never thought we’d make it this far, but somehow we did – only now it could be over before it ever really started and the idea of not seeing where this can still go …

Sometimes Ass Backwards Works Better Than Forwards

Timing Is Everyting When Dating

His text came out of nowhere last week, though a welcomed surprise. The last time we’d had a lengthy conversation I’d been somewhat of a bitch to him. It was nearly two months prior, after my ego had been bruised during our short-lived attempt at friends with benefits. At the time he’d wanted sex and I …

Shut Your Whore Mouth And Stop Obsessing Over Why He’s Not Into You

As a woman, I tend to spend a significant amount of time wondering why certain men that come into my life just aren’t that into me. Or if they are initially into me and things don’t work out I just HAVE to try to figure out why. Do you ever find yourself questioning what went …

Just Say No To Casual Sex And Friends With Benefits, If You’re Like Me

I looked in the mirror and barely recognized myself. “What the fuck were you thinking?” I asked my reflection, while I stared solemnly at the woman looking back at me. She was not who I wanted or planned to be, but after unintentionally running in another circle I’d found myself face to face with her …

Why Age Difference Shouldn’t Matter And I’m Kind Of A Moron

Yesterday I wrote about my recent trip to Cougar Town. I made jokes about mine and my date’s age difference online, offline to my friends and family, and even to my actual date because jokes are often my way of hiding my insecurity – which makes me kind of a moron. That’s some self-depricating bullshit …

Cougar Town > Funky Town

Cougar Town Texts

Somehow we ended up holding hands for longer than I expected while we drank our beers and gazed at one another from across the table. Half of me wanted to take my hand back, and the other half wanted to close my eyes, enjoy the affection and never let go. What happened in reality was …

Dating: They Can’t All Be Winners

They Can't All Be Winners Bacon

For most of my life I’ve clung to the romantic belief of each of us having a soulmate – otherwise known as the one. I say clung because at times that belief was literally my life raft, keeping me from drowning during bouts of depression anytime I had my heartbroken. “Just keep swimming, ” I’d …

Making The First Move

Making The First Move Lady Balls

I’ve joked a lot about my online dating woes here, but I know deep down that online dating can work. After all, one of my blogger idols Ms. Single Mama met her amazing husband on OKCupid after several failed attempts at dating the old fashioned way. And one of my closest friends in real life …
